org-smooth-almond-salt

Meridian Foods is a proud winner of a Soil Association Organic Food Award for its Organic Almond Butter. The product topped the savoury preserves category and was originally nominated for the award by members of the public.

Made from 99.5% organic almonds and nothing more than a pinch of sea salt, Meridian Organic Almond Butter is produced in Corwen, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.

The almonds are roasted with their skins on, ensuring that this nut butter retains all the taste and valuable nutrients of the almonds.

Delicious on warm toasted bagels, it's also great in breakfast smoothies. It can be used in baking, for making salad dressings and you can even stir it through hot pasta.

Meridian Organic Almond Butter is just one of an impressive range of organic and natural nut and seed butters from Meridian. Other options include Cashew Butter, Brazil Nut Butter, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Tahini and Hazelnut Butter. Meridian also makes several different styles of peanut butter including recipes using 100% nuts.

The Awards

The Organic Food Awards 2012 were announced as part of this year's Organic September, Europe's biggest celebration of all things organic. Now in their 24th year, the Soil Association Organic Food Awards recognise and celebrate the highest quality organic food and drink. The awards are among the most prestigious and widely respected in the UK food sector.

Over three days at the Duke of Cambridge organic pub in London, an expert judging panel of food critics, restaurateurs, broadcasters and chefs, including Hardeep Singh Kohli and Jo Wood, sipped, nibbled and crunched their way through over 500 products across 28 categories.

Judging in all categories was by blind tasting, with products rated according to smell, texture, appearance, taste and overall 'yumminess'.

The awards are open to all organic food and drink products that are certified by a recognised certifier within the EU. Winners gain industry respect and are able to use the recognised and trusted awards logo on their products.
